Below you find the tuition fees for the academic year 2017-2018. An academic year is the annual period of sessions beginning in September and ending in June. The tuition fees are adjusted annually on the basis of the Dutch Consumer Price Index. The University of Twente applies two types of student tuition fees: the statutory tuition fee and the institutional tuition fee.
If you are a national of an EU/EEA country, it is likely you need to pay the so-called ‘statutory tuition fee’. This fee is determined and subsidized by the Dutch government. The statutory tuition fee applies to most, but not all EU/EEA countries and/or master’s programmes (also see ‘Institutional tuition fee’). In the Netherlands, the statutory tuition fees for the academic year 2018-2019 are:
- Euro 2,060 per year for a bachelor’s programme.
- Euro 4,120 per year for the Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences (ATLAS) programme
HALVING TUITION FEE FOR FIRST YEAR (BACHELOR) STUDENTS
The Dutch government has made a bill to introduce a halving of tuition fees. This proposal concerns first year students who start with a Bachelor in the academic year 2018-2019 and pay the statutory tuition fees. A number of exceptions apply to this. You should therefore check the website of the government whether this measure also applies to you.
Dutch universities do not receive government funding for non-EU students. Therefore, non-EU students need to pay higher fees. The University of Twente applies the following institutional fees for the academic year 2018-2019:
Note: The annual tuition fees for EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA students to pursue the Bachelor's programme in Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences (ATLAS) at our University College Twente are higher than those charged for other Bachelor's programmes at the University of Twente.
